What is Epiphany?
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6. Coming after the season of Christmas (the twelve days of Christmas), Epiphany marks the arrival of the Wise Men (Magi) to visit Jesus, the Christ Child.
The days after Christmas, leading up to Epiphany, are often known as the "twelve days of Christmas."
In Hispanic culture, Epiphany is celebrated as "The Day of the Kings" or "Three Kings Day." In some cultures, presents are exchanged and a King's Cake is shared.
January 6 is celebrated by the Eastern Orthodox Church as the date of Jesus' birth.
"Epiphany celebrates not only that God chooses to do this, but that one day we woke up and noticed it. May we wake up to this fact again and again, experiencing one glorious Epiphany after another." — Sarah Parsons (Author of A Clearing Season: Reflections for Lent).
Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
